Double Take: Savannah vs. Portland
Face-off: Savannah vs. Portland
LEFT: Savannah, Georgia's gracious "Hostess City" is all about entertaining.
RIGHT: Portland, Oregon's trend-generating city draws the cool and cultured.
LEFT: With a musical rumored to be in the works, the novel's storied sites are worth revisiting with Savannah Heritage Tours's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil tour.
RIGHT: Fans of the gently ironic self-spoof on the IFC network (or just of Portland's cultural quirks) will love the three-hour daily Portlandia tour from Portlandia Tours.
LEFT: For a sweet takeaway, visit Savannah Bee Company's flagship store on historic Broughton Street and pick up a locally harvested honey.
RIGHT: Get a new set of wheels in America's biking capital from one of the 40 local bike design/build companies. For a list of makers, see madeinportland.org/bikes.
LEFT: Local ingredients get an Italian spin at Hugh Acheson's new restaurant, The Florence. The black bucatini includes Tybee Island shrimp and ACE Basin clams.
RIGHT: Few Portland eats are as iconic as Voodoo Doughnut's bacon-maple bar, the sweet/salty treat that locals vow kicked of the nationwide bacon craze.
